VirtualBox control over the browserFiled under: News;
Most users are familiar with VirtualBox as a pure desktop application. However, VirtualBox can offer much more. Besides the possibility to control using VBoxManage VirtualBox VirtualBox comes with the console via a web interface with vboxwebsrv, by which you can use the service. So you can achieve similar functionality to using VirtualBox for example, with VMware Server.With the additional phpvirtualbox script you can use VirtualBox almost entirely through the browser.
